  1. Do you know if this one does? https://www.ebay.com/itm/BAKU-BK-601D-110V-SMD-Brushless-Heat-Gun-Soldering-Iron-Station-with-Stand-700W/172602609533?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200603055202%26meid%3D305ac90d7d924d6c940af6c237a6a9d3%26pid%3D101111%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D303586984190%26itm%3D172602609533%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2563228&_trksid=p2563228.c101111.m2109
  2. I still wish that I could find one that has the option of changing Celsius to Fahrenheit.
  3. I know that Dave hasn't logged on here since June 25, 2004, but here's something that will hopefully find its way to him anyway somehow. I just made this little Twitch stream where I played several of his games on my Mega STE with Ultrasatan. Dave was my PD/Shareware idol in the early to mid 90's. I think that I can truly speak for all of us by saying thank you for all of the incredible memories that you have given us. You are truly the King of ST PD/Shareware, and an inspiration to us all.
  4. Awesome, I can't wait for this, totally interested!
  5. Ever watch 90 Day Fiancé? These people meet someone online and date them for up to a few years before they finally meet. I doubt they consider them strangers lol. Me personally? I'm in the middle. For the most part, I agree that people I've never met are strangers, but if I talk to them on the phone or FaceTime them, then I no longer consider them strangers. That's just me though.
  6. Thanks, didn't know about that nickname. The Tandy is one of the few classic computers that I have zero experience with. One day maybe...
  7. What's a Coco? I tried Google, but all that came up was a movie and hot chocolate.
  8. The Jaguar. I didn't want to, but it was the Summer of 1994 and I was jobless, and I started to get into PC's. I got an IBM XT for free and fell in love. While awesome, I needed far more power. I traded my Jaguar (that I had gotten for Christmas 1993) for a 386 and VGA monitor to legendary NYC BBSer Saor, aka Xodus. It was a pretty good deal at the time and I had zero regrets.
  9. I just started. It's pretty cool, I've been short-streaming for now while I fine tune it.
  10. Unfortunately it was lost in a fire in 2002. I sold it whole for $1,800 or so, which is insane considering it was destroyed from the front to the dash. I probably pulled the ECU before I sold it, unless I modified it and kept the old one. I can't remember.
  11. Oh I would, but Atari Age does not let you edit past one hour.
  12. None, I didn't go to get a PC, the PC came to me lol. I was a hardcore Atarian, and answered an add in the local paper for a laser printer for $150. My plans were to hook it up to my Atari 1040 STe, but it was a Wang (I think) serial laser printer. He warned me about its difficulties and how it might now work on my Atari, but I didn't listen and bought it anyway. Turns out he was right, and it never worked. However, while at his house and talking to the guy for an hour or so, he was surprised my only computer knowledge was Atari's. He gave me for free an old 5160 ST and CGA monitor, and said I just needed to get a keyboard. After failing to get the serial printer to work, I turned to the XT. I quickly got a keyboard and powered it on. I had no clue what to do with it, since I didn't know any DOS. Luckily for me though I was heavily into the local BBS scene, and had plenty of friends to help, especial one guy in particular: Xodus, also know as Saor. He game me some basic DOS commands and I was completely hooded. I went out and bought DOS For Dummies and the rest is history. I never went back.
  13. I got one for free in 1994. I learned DOS on it, and it taught me how to remove and install the various parts of a PC. Like an idiot, I traded it in along with the monitor, a Wang serial laser printer, a 386 computer, and probably some cash for a BS 486 computer. One thing he didn't get, however was the hard drive, as I removed it before the trade (see attached pic). Today, the going price for the XT 5160, monitor, and keyboard seems to be around $350 to $400+ on eBay. I'm currently looking for one right now. It's tough to find one locally.
  14. Oh, you bet. I miss my Grand Nationals so much, especially the 1987. It was the ultimate 80's car. To this day, the 1986 and 1987 Grand Nationals are the only mass-production GM cars to ever beat out the Corvette in performance. GM likes to have the Corvette come out on top every year. This is one of the many reasons why the GN is very expensive today. Here's a 2001 pic of me sitting on my car. I would later go on to replace the rims to stock.
